Super amazing product! Leaves face so soft and moisturized. The best part is its oil free so it's pretty much good for all skin types. Highly recommend it!

I love the smell and the texture it has . I know that some think that it is too harsh on their face but it just really depends on how sensitive your skin is.

This product does an okay job and exfoliating. It does have a fairly pleasant smell and a good price point. It does seem a bit rough for my skin personally.

Makes my skin feel and smell incredible. Seriously, probably my favorite and most used face washes. I feel like I’ve emptied at least 20-25 of these bottles!

By far my favorite facial scrub. Even if I use it more often as I shouldn't it didnt leave my skin dry. I dont need a makeup remover this works well for it.
